New Firsts

We are constantly in awe of this little girl, especially when she does something brand new. This weekend gave us a few more of those precious firsts.

Friday morning before we headed to work
While we were at work Kathryn and my mother-in-law went shopping and she bought her a top-of-the-line toddler toilet. When they got home, she put Kathryn on it and she actually peed! And just to prove that it wasn't a fluke, K proceeded to do it one more time before we picked her up after work.

Never have I ever thought I'd be so excited or in awe over pee! (Just one of the many ways motherhood changes you...me).

Friday night E. J. worked an off-duty job and didn't get home until 2 a.m. When I went to check on Kathryn and say goodnight around 10 p.m., I decided to scoop K out of her crib and bring her to our bed for some company. She was out cold as I walked her to our bedroom.

K has never slept in our room, let alone in our bed - she's been in her crib since the first night she came home with us, so it was sweet to have her just laying next to me. Frankly it's the only way she would lay next to me. This girl doesn't sit still for more than 5 seconds.

When E. J. got home 4 hours later, I woke up from 4 peaceful hours of snuggling and returned the little Bug back to her crib:)
On Saturday we ran some errands in town.
Testing out some camo-camping chairs
We stopped at Chick-Fil-A for a quick lunch and ordered her 4 nuggets (I don't feel too bad about their nuggets since we don't eat out much and they aren't as "bad" as traditional fast/gross food), yet somehow we ended up with the meal.

Had we known we were getting the meal, we would have ordered fruit instead of fries, but K certainly wasn't complaining that she got fries, so we let her have his first "meal" at a restaurant and she ate the entire thing!
While we were out, we bought K a potty for our house. (Sorry, Kathryn. When your parents are on a tight budget, you get the cheapest $10 toilet, but you can pee in style while you're at your grandparents house).
She actually went to the bathroom again when E. J. set it up when we got home. She hopped on it herself like she's been doing it for years. Impressive!

We spent today around the house, since it's still too hot to do much outside. Kathryn found time for some light reading...no kidding. She went to the bookshelf in the living room, grabbed a few of her books, walked to her bedroom, and sat her chair while she read.
Time to conquer another week!
